The year is 2037. Neuroscientist Jun Xie lives to expand human potential, not limit it; the United Adaptive, a global socio-political corporation, doesn’t agree.
Jun’s studying a woman who possesses exceptional capabilities, what they call a Pre-Emptive Perception - ‘knowing’ things before they happen. Jun and the team are on the cusp of a breakthrough; until the subject takes her own life.
Twenty-five years later, no longer a neuroscientist but an anxious lecturer and mother, Jun is forced to confront the past and that observation, when her son announces he’s working for the United Adaptive.
History seems to be repeating itself, but why? Can Jun stop it? Does she want to?
